  • I have a bad time between jobs because I'm always convinced I'll never work again. I think it may be an English thing, this fear of unemployment.
  • (Of attending the Academy Awards Ceremony) "Like going to Liberace's house on acid."
  • Every film you make as an actor it's not yours, it's the director's.
  • I think every director has a different take, some are good, some are bad. The directors you get on best with sometimes don't make the best films, so who's to say who is right?
  • Everyone is an abused child, if you think about what governments do.
  • Doing comedy for film is always a challenge because you are in the hands of the editor after the fact. I am hoping I can do some more soon, I enjoy doing comedy.

This show is truly amazing and paralyzing w/its edgy plots and dramatic content! Tim Roth is w/o a doubt what makes this show so gripping in nature. The very science behind his character and the ability to read expressions and body language create the twist and turns that a series has not been able to duplicate since. We have the 3 seasons and watch them over and over, and really would love it if Tim Roth would make more seasons:-), pretty please??? My kids have even picked up on some of his "reads" of human expression and noticed different things in people they might not otherwise-all in fun of course. Nonetheless, Tim Roth and his castmates remain highly talented, genuine actors within this series and leave us wanting some more:-).
